2. Lavish condo near the beach (from USD 120)

The red and white accent colors create a stunning and dramatic effect in the living room. The little LED-lit bar is an add on to the whole ambiance, with a two-zone wine fridge and an ice factory. It also has several choices for amusement, such as Wi-Fi and a TV with Netflix and Apple TV. Don’t forget to wear your party hats! The high floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room let in lots of light along with offering beautiful views. When you are done watching that movie you never got time to watch before, take the stairs to your bedroom and nap the afternoon away. The bedroom is luxuriously done with mood lighting, and it has a spacious bathroom attached. Have a long shower after an exciting day at beach, or just curl up under the soft blanket with an easy book. Welcome to the other bedroom! This bright, cherry-red room with variable mood lights makes a perfect setting for a romantic or fun escapade. This room also has a deluxe bathroom with a luxurious bath tub.

This was a definite party house!! We had 6 ladies and was able to manage with 2.5 bathrooms. The kitchen and living room are very spacious, allowing us to spend lots of quality time all together. The fully stocked Bar was an awesome addition. Looks just like the pictures. And it’s priced really well. Would stay here again. Mary
The kitchen is pretty awesome, with plenty of modern features to tempt you into your apron and chef’s hat.

3. A room in a picturesque paradise (from USD 75)

Here is the wooden front door peering out from the fresh beautiful green leaves that is going to welcome you when you reach this well-appointed house. Doesn’t it look pretty? The house is done charmingly in a contemporary way. The en suite is spacious yet cozy and comes with a dressing room with plenty of storage space. We all know how much everybody loves getting that extra storage space. Done in marble floors and hardwood furniture, the space prettily accommodates everything you might be in need of anytime. There is a big collection of movies, books, magazines, and games right outside the room when you are looking for some laid-back amusement. The bathroom is well stocked with plush toiletries and fresh towels, and even includes that sometimes crucial hair dryer. It is much like a hotel room, but arguably a lot better! Moreover, there is a nice pool and a gorgeous backyard waiting for you as well. Don’t you love how this kitchen looks? Feel free to experiment when you want to make your own quesadillas or bake a cake for any special occasion you may be here for. There is also a brand new gas grill if you want to do your cooking outside in the garden while enjoying nature and family. Do enjoy the simple pleasures that make all-time memories. The living room makes a perfectly lovely place to relax with beautiful views in sight. Done in a classic beach cottage with a resort-like style, it makes you slow down and enjoy your chilled glass of your favorite tipple even more. Located in the Hotel Zone, a beautiful strip of land with the lagoon on one side and the ocean on the other side, the space looks picturesque from every angle. Relish your morning breakfast that comes with the accommodation in this bright, sunny space. Or, sit in the backyard, which is extremely calming with beautiful views of the canal. You can also choose to start your day in the lovely gazebo built on the water and watch the fishing boats and yachts pass by while you enjoy your morning cup of coffee.

Eli was very welcoming and she cooks a great breakfast. We really appreciated the attention to detail in the equipping of the room that made it very comfortable. It was an oasis of peace and quiet in a busy Cancun and especially lovely being able to sit out around the pool, under trees, next to the lagoon. Geraldine

4. B&B suite in the Cancun Hotel Zone (from USD 85)

A comfortable guest experience can be expected from this bright and airy room in Cancun’s hotel zone, courtesy of the floor-to-ceiling glass windows that offer an expansive view of the canal and lagoon. The plush king-sized bed will leave you well rested prior to your days of exploring the rest of the city, and the walk-in closet will provide plenty of storage space for you to store your belongings. If you’re in the mood for some late-night stargazing with a glass of wine or simply catching some seasonally sunny weather, the modest but charming balcony is an ideal spot to do so! The well-appointed bathroom is furnished with marble floors and a double vanity sink, which provides more than enough space for you to deposit your makeup and facial products. Also, don’t miss out on a chance to soak your troubles away in the large jacuzzi provided. The earth-toned living room is adorned with dark wood furniture, making it a sweet and cozy spot to relax and enjoy the multitude of top techs featured, including a 50-inch HD flat-screen TV, a Harman Kardon surround sound system, a DVD player, and an Xbox 360. Then, brew yourself an aromatic cup of coffee using the coffee maker or pour yourself a glass of wine from the wine fridge! The orange-and-black tiled kitchen is also equipped with all the basic cooking utensils that you’ll need to prepare a meal for yourself. Should you have the desire to dine alfresco, the brand new gas grill in the garden is readily at your disposal. The semi-private pool is a great place for a refreshing dip that will cool you off in the sweltering hot weather. If you prefer not to get wet, you can also lounge with a book or your favorite cocktail on one of the sun chairs surrounding the pool. The tranquil running and biking tracks encompassing the boulevard is a sweet spot to amble along while enjoying gorgeous views of the nearby lagoon. Nature lovers would fall in love with the serenity of this place, and city dwellers will find comfort in knowing that downtown Cancun, as well as the biggest local mall, is just 8 minutes away.

6. Caribbean house near the airport (from USD 42)

This homey, traditional Mexican accommodation is ideal for those who are visiting just for a short stay and wish to stay near the airport. True to the Caribbean style, the house is spread out and has many open spaces. Located in a quiet neighborhood, you can experience a local atmosphere. The room looks lovely and tranquil as you enter. It is huge with lots of space not just in the room, but in the bathroom and on the private balcony as well. And, isn’t that bed pretty? A true sanctuary, the room is artistic and charming. Wake up to the song of the birds in the mornings, like you would in a Mayan jungle. The private balcony attached to the room gives a cozy place to relax, meditate, and read. Imagine soaking in the sun with Bob Marley singing ‘three little birds’ in the background. Bliss!

Her home is phenomenal and loved every bit of the stay. She provided coffee and the best fruit breakfast! !! The home was super clean and very spacious. I loved the shower and bathroom area. She is highly recommended and I would definitely stay there again. Also the security was terrific and felt very save. Rudy

7. Pretty room in a Mexican household (from USD 18)

With its liberal doses of shades of blue and spring greens, this is such a happy space. Love happy spaces? The king-sized bed is comfortable and will encourage you to doze off. This house is in a secured neighborhood with easy access to bus services and taxis. Beautiful, safe, and happy, and for just sixteen dollars a night! The bathroom in the house is as tastefully done as the rest of the space. It is shared with the host family of two. According to past guests the hosts are friendly and the amenities are neat and clean. Staying in this gorgeous Mexican household is fun. The friendly and helpful hosts make it seem like a home away from home. The charming decor and pieces of local art in the house offer warmth and more-local vibes. Even a dull day becomes captivating when you have an attractive and thoughtful space to wake up to. This beautiful and stylish living room complements the modern house. Plop onto that sofa and get chatty with people around. That’s how you learn about new cultures, isn’t it? Hungry? This is your go-to place for quick cups of coffee and toast. You can also fix up a fancy meal if you feel so inclined. When looking for eating-out options near the property, la Chocita is a great bar at the end of the road, serving delicious ceviche and welcoming you like an old friend. When not doing anything, laze around the private terrace and enjoy the hammocks.

Extremely comfortable house and room ! Beautifully decorated and stylish home. Nice and cool inside home and in a safe neighbourhood. Cirila and her family were very welcoming and extrmemely helpful, even driving me to the airport in the very early morning for a reasonable fee. Heather

The comfortable double bed promises comfort at the end of a thrilling day, so go ahead and sink into the luscious sheets!

The suite seems spacious and airy, thanks to the wooden framed windows and double doors that let in an abundance of natural light. You can’t help but feel like you’re living in a Balinese villa, with all the tropical accents and dark wood furnishings around the place!

10. Family-friendly apartment overlooking the Caribbean Sea (from 216 USD)

Thinking of a family vacation or a getaway with friends? This three-bedroom apartment on the ninth floor and overlooking the Caribbean Sea might fit in beautifully with your scheme of things. The spacious living room is lovingly decorated, perfectly complementing the amazing views of the Caribbean Sea and Isla Mujeres. Enjoy the Caribbean coastline from the comforts of your home. The views just seem to keep on getting better as the day progresses. The well kept gardens, which spread for one hectare (2.5 acres), also make for a lovely sight. Like people say, food tastes better when you eat it with your family. Enjoy a hearty meal with interesting conversations and fun memories. The views and fresh air only add to the great ambiance. Early in the morning, you can get fresh lobster and fish direct from fishermen just beside the complex or across the street. They are quite popular. Cook your purchases in the grill areas located in the garden, or bring them up to your kitchen and make a simple fish stew. The kitchen is well equipped for whipping up a quick meal or a detailed dinner. Don’t forget to buy some wine as well.

She greeted us upon our arrival had fresh water and snacks available including Columbian coffee. She drove us to the money exchange, she showed us the grocery stores, restaurants, directions and overall helpful hints. The condo is absolutely beautiful, sparkling clean and has the most amazing views from every room. The food hut on site serves delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner. Joni
Blue looks like a dominant color in this bedroom, with sea and skies in the background and the blue striped bed linens inside. The telescope at the side of the bed and the picture of a sports car, accompanied by a huge collection of miniature cars, make this room a swift pick by your boys if you are vacationing with children. Sit on that yellow chair and enjoy the view of the infinity pool and the sea with the gardens. The shelves are stocked with books so you can also curl up with one of them while enjoying the fresh breeze. Slip into the breathtakingly amazing infinity pool that falls towards the sea’s water, creating a visual effect of the pools seeming to blend with the Caribbean Sea. A direct exit to the beach, one hectare (2.5 acres) of landscaped gardens, a barbecue grill, a kids’ club and playground, a family room, and a restaurant with affordable prices can all be found around the swimming pool. The Ultramar terminal, from where you can take a ferry to Isla Mujeres, is a short walk away from the condo.
